Autumn 2 - 2020
We are in the process of transferring information and pictures from our old web site onto this page. Please do check back for updates.
Class Collective Worship
Our first Class Collective Worship, looking at our new value Friendship, was led by Luke, Khadija and Liam.
We took part in the Remembrance Day service at school and also researched the role of Indian soldiers in the war, who are often forgotten. We created a double page spread in our R.E books about them and also put copies of this work on the school fence so that our learning could be shared with the local community.
Anti-bullying - Odd Socks
We began our Anti-Bullying week with an odd socks day. The odd socks illustrated that it is alright to be different and that year 6 are united against bullying.
Science posters - we have collaborated in groups to research the characteristics and to find examples of one of the vertebrate groups. We then shared our learning with the rest of the class.
In art with Mrs Taylor, we have been looking at Inuit block printing designs. Traditionally Inuit artists used etching and carving on materials such as ivory, bone and stone. Their carvings often depict animals of the artic. We used our art books to create a mood board of ideas for our block printing design. We then etched the design and used ink based paint to print them.
We've enjoyed our music lessons with Mr Halligan (linked to our WW2 learning challenge).We researched unusual facts about Hitler to help create lyrics for our song 'Moustache Man'. We used the GarageBand app on the ipad to make an instrumental.
Year 6 were very sad that we had to go home to isolate for a couple of weeks but it hasn't stopped us from learning! Have a look at what we have been doing.
Although we are at home we have been able to keep in touch with the rest of school by attending the daily collective worships via Zoom. It is lovely to see everyone and to be able to join in.
Luke has been busy in the kitchen making corn beef hash using a WW2 recipe. It looks delicious!
Elliot has been very creative with his home learning, he has made an angel for our school Christmas tree and an Anderson Shelter which he made from a paper cylinder, green felt and a paper plate cut in half and covered in foil.
Zahra has made and painted her Anderson Shelter. Elliot has worked hard to do a Pokemon in the style of Kenojuak Askevak. Luke has enjoyed the art work home learning, he has also painted his Anderson Shelter.
Virtual Christmas Tree Festival
Year 6 joined in with the rest of the school to make angels for our Christmas tree. School then sent pictures of the completed tree to the Methodist Church in Hyde for their Virtual Christmas Tree Festival.
The St George's 'Real Nativity'
We have missed doing our Nativity in Church this year but we have thoroughly enjoyed being creative and producing our 'Real Nativity' in some very interesting locations. Click on the link to find out more.
